I started writing this mail, and during writing realized that I'm not
sure what I was about to suggest made any sense. This is a question to
the forum, then.
Does it make sense to ask packagers to package Winelib seperately from
wine (obviously, wine needs winelib to run, but that is a piece of cake
for any decent packaging system I know, with the sole exception of the
various windows installers, hint hint)? Does such a request have any
meaning at all?
I realize that you COULD say that the sourcedir/dlls directory's output
should go into winelib, the header into winelib-devel, and the wine
executable, and sourcedir/programs output into the wine package, but I'm
not at all sure that would leave you with a usable winelib package.
